Partner Up With Cotton made in Africa in Two Steps

Do you produce textiles or deliver finished products, and are your clients demanding products bearing the CmiA label? You can easily meet this demand in two simple steps:

Step One: Order CmiA Cotton

Order the required amount of fabric from a CmiA-registered fabric producer or from your regular supplier. You must ensure that the factory receives the raw material (the yarn) from a spinning mill registered with Cotton made in Africa.  It makes sense to have the spinning mill regularly present a valid CmiA certificate.

Step Two: Monitor Your Supply Chain

To ensure that Cotton made in Africa is traceable throughout the textile value chain, it is important that the reference to Cotton made in Africa is recorded on all documents, including orders, contracts, and invoices.
